NAB Panel to Explore Hybrid Station Operations

Paul McLane hosts speakers from WTOP, Beasley and Audacy

Radio World Editor in Chief Paul McLane will moderate a panel discussion about hybrid station operations at the NAB Show.

“We see it in our industry coverage every day: Radio enterprises have made permanent changes to workflows since the pandemic hit,” said McLane. “Many of these changes were happening anyway, but COVID compressed the process dramatically. And much of what was created ‘ad hoc’ is now standard procedure.”

Tech experts from three leading broadcast organizations will talk about what has happened since the start of the pandemic and where they see things going for facility designs and workflow patterns. Also what “interim” measures are now “best practices” and how differently we view facilities than we once did.

The guests are Sarah Foss, chief technology officer of Audacy; Lamar Smith, VP of engineering for Beasley Media Group; and George Molnar and Brian Oliger, who are respectively the senior director of technology and the technology manager of WTOP News and Federal News Network in Washington.
